I really don't want to have my impressions of this place tainted by what was clearly one bad dish. The setting is wonderful, with marvelous 50s/60s memorabilia all over the walls. The service is stellar, attentive, and totally friendly, the coffee is absolutely spot on perfect and delicious, and the servings are enormous for the money. I was salivating as I watched other tables dig into servings which could easily satisfy TWO people.

An old time restauranteur once told me that you never order the Special of the Day. The reason is that the regular menu items will usually have been perfected over weeks, months or even years, while the Special can be a one-off that wasn't quite thought through or created to utilize a particular ingredient that there was lots of in stock. That is unfortunately what happened with the Southwest Hash. The typical Floyd's little potato discs were marvelous as usual and the toast was also typically huge, fresh and fantastic... but the hash itself was awful. It was like eating Styrofoam mixed with straw, so dry that literally coating it with ketchup barely made it possible to swallow. The chicken had been cooked to the point where it was almost jerky, the eggs were chunky and a really disconcerting gray colour, and the beans were slimy. The only ingredient with even a molecule of moisture was the tomato and there were barely half a dozen tiny dices of it. Really really REALLY unacceptable..

Too bad that I didn't order anything else off the menu or I would have had a great breakfast.

This place has just about everything and with monster helpings. No tourists here - all locals. Breakfasts are top notch.

My only complaint is that this diner is only open for breakfast (non better) and lunch. One of the better spots to visit in the Langford/Westshore area of Victoria. Home cooked quality food done right. You will be stuffed

When you believe that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, Floyds is the place to go. Yes, there is usually a lineup. But they bring you a coffee while you wait, keep you updated on your table availability and you can socialize with the other patrons. When you arrive at your table, they have a fresh cup of coffee for you while you look at their extensive breakfast selection. I had Eggs Beni while my companion had bacon and eggs. Big portions, fresh eggs, the English muffins slightly crispy on the edge from grilling. The Bacon? Not little spindly half raw slices..Big.Crispy..full size back home farm style. Fantastic stick to your ribs big breakfast. Oops did I mention quick friendly servers and retro Diner decore? Yes, all that and great food.
